Reflection

This week’s I Love the Psalms theme is power.

Today’s verse from the Psalms reminds us that some humans have powerful hands.

Rescue the weak and homeless from the powerful hands of heartless people (Psalm 82:4, CEV).

We are not powerless though the world and the devil would like us to believe that we can’t change anything. The truth is when we work with the Lord, we have tremendous power.

When more than 5,000 hungry people gathered to hear Jesus, he told his disciples, “You give them something to eat” (Matthew 14:16). And that’s exactly what they did. Jesus did the miracle, but their hands distributed the bread and fish.

God does not work alone. He chooses to work through people. Today you can be the hands of Jesus at work in the world.

Response: LORD God, thank you for the opportunity to work with you today. I want to use my hands to work powerfully for you. Amen.

Your Turn: Has God worked through your hands recently?
